Workday on Managing a Job Grid using Akka

Today, we're excited to share a blog post from our customer Workday, about how they used Akka to build a complex Job Grid.

Here's a snippet:

The Job Grid

Every month Workday’s Integration Cloud Platform (ICP) executes millions of jobs for its hundreds of customers: integration runs, PDF document generations, Payroll calculations and other types of background processing tasks. A feature of the ICP is that it allows customers and their partners to deploy code to Workday, which Workday then runs on their behalf. To achieve this, Workday has deployed a Grid of servers that can be dynamically allocated to tenants based on real-time demand. The Grid provides a scalable, secure, and isolated execution environment for all tenants.
